Sample text

Fahler and Osis, 1966; McCallam and Honorton, 1973) have asked subjects to register confidence calls by placing a check beside those responses that felt good, placing those cards above rather than below the key cards, etc. , marking somewhere between 5 and 10% of the calls as "confident"). lb. Responses by Humans Unaware of the Existence of Their Targets. Throughout the above procedures, one problem that remains 38 Robert L. , Kreitler and Kreitler, 1972, 1973) is to mask the psychic component of a particular procedure so that the subjects believe themselves to be either in an orthodox psychology study or at least in an ESP study for which the particular procedure in question is designed to measure something other than ESP.

The agent concentrated part of the time on vertical movement, part of the time on horizontal movement. Subjects showed some tendency to respond in accordance with the agent's assigned instructions. In a related study, subjects were shown ambiguous pictures of people interacting and were asked to compose stories about them. A remote agent periodically concentrated upon various basic emotional themes likely to occur in stories about such pictures. The Kreitlers hypothesized that a remote agent might bias the behavior of someone nearby undergoing an experience in which he or she is making choices related to the content of the agent's concentration.

The blind matching technique is well adapted to explore this line of reasoning, since the key cards can be set up to be only cognitively related to the target cards, and the complexity of the cognitive relationship can be varied. Carpenter (1965), for instance, employed key cards with numerical equations written on them and target cards with the numerical solutions. , in front of the key card that it solves mathematically. In similar fashion Rao (1963) used target cards in one language and key cards of the same words in not only another language but another alphabet.
